Powell's POV: The good news is that the rating didn't collapse in the second hour. The bad news is that the show scored a 0.85 overall rating, which was down from the 1.07 rating the show drew last week. The number is similar to the 0.9 rating that the show drew for last year's Thanksgiving show. However, the 2008 Thanksgiving show drew a 1.1 rating, which was consistent with the ratings that Impact was generating in the week leading up to the holiday special.
